Volunteer Work in Kenya

KENYA / Karibuni Eco-Cottages

Hi, I work for Karibuni Eco-Cottages, a community-based tourism initiative established in 2009 by Team Kenya in Ndhiwa, rural Kenya. The project offers visitors the chance to experience life in a traditional Kenyan village in an ethical and sustainable way, as well as offering a wide-range of volunteering opportunities. Karibuni is also a community resource for sustainable development addressing problems such as climate change and lack of food security, and provides an important venue for community groups to meet, hold workshops and carry out other activities and training.

There is a wide-range of volunteering opportunities at Karibuni, including: educational work including teaching and homework support for local girls, sports coaching, participating in community building projects, getting involved in environmental projects e.g tree planting, recycling and composting. No qualifications are required to volunteer with us, but if a volunteer feels they have a specific skill to share, we are happy to find a way to utilise it.

Volunteers can choose to stay in a traditional Luo Hut, or a brick house. There are three luo huts that can accommodate 4-6 people, and two brick houses that accommodate 2 each. There is no fee to volunteer at Karibuni, but volunteers need to pay for their own flights.

Accommodation is £15 a night for volunteers, full board. Volunteers will be collected from the airport and looked after throughout their volunteer experience.
